    If you want to get from the Valle di Forcola to the Stelvio Pass, you can get there via the Bochetta di Forcola (2,768 meters). During the First World War, the front between Italy and Austria passed here. Well-preserved remains of trenches and shelters can be seen here.

    From the Umbrail, it is possible to reach the Lago di San Giacomo in two ways. Left route requires Topp technology (danger of falling). Great round trip Sta. Maria, Umbrail, Lake Cancano / Lake San Giacomo, Val Mora. The first 1200hm on the Umbrail, can be overcome with the Postauto.

    Here on the saddle you can still witness old wars. Old trenches and loopholes. One can hardly imagine what the soldiers had to endure back then.

    You can enjoy a great panorama here. It was not for nothing that this gap was hotly contested. Old trenches and loopholes are still very well preserved.

    Sher beautiful, lonely area. Old military installations (ruins). Nice trail from the Umbrail, then on via B. Pendenolo or down to Braulio.

    The proverbial high point (2760m is a word for an MTB pass) of the beautiful route from Passo Umbrail to the Lago di Cancano reservoir
